For all of you who want to reign in Hell,
I got terribly disappointing news to tell:
That throne has countless contenders;
the true heirs thrive on you pretenders.
And as your usefulness certainly ends,
you will be backstabbed by old friends.
All that you so lust to have and control,
will turn to ash at the cost of your soul.
Must the whole world perpetually burn,
before you at long last accept to learn?
Lies have no power to really create,
only to corrupt, invert and simulate.
Convincing us that truth is not true,
making us forget what we all knew.
Ever the seemingly opposed sides;
obscuring where the trickery hides.
Heed which waters are thrown out;
here proverbial babies swim about.
Welcome to another Sangenkai seminar in Umeå!
We have invited Matei Ionescu again, from Sangenkai Norway, to hold a basic workshop in Sangen (internal power & aiki), as taught by Dan Harden – more info and relevant links here. This time we will do two days in order to go more in-depth.

Beliefs have proclivity to self-confirm;
we propagate the thoughts we affirm.
Not just any flights of fancy mind you,
but that which we deeply hold as true.
“No one deserves my unique wonder”
may truly be “unlovable” hiding under.
Real shadow work may serve us well;
the antidote to a self-maintained hell.
Friendship is antithesis to service by lip;
the friend valued above the relationship.
A wholehearted aim for each to be free,
by illuminating blind spots we don’t see.
“Tell me truth, but only the way I want it”
is for such a communion utmostly unfit.
If we realize what is ultimately our best,
we may meet life in a way truly blessed.
Feelings are of mind, emotions by the heart;
ever seeking each other, yet strangely apart.
If the energies in motion aren’t properly felt,
how can these companions creatively melt?
Likewise with happiness ungrounded in joy;
an endeavour made from a disastrous ploy.
The dance between conveyed and received,
determining every manifestation conceived.
